Intel looks to be set to give its mobile CPU offerings a shot in the arm, with HKEPC Hardware reporting that the chip maker has a pair of new Core 2 Extreme processors in the pipeline, aimed squarely at laptops catering to the more demanding gamers among us. Both processors fall under the "Mermon XE" codename, coming in at the 65nm level, and packing 4MB of shared L2 cache and an 800MHz frontside bus, along with support for SpeedStep, Virtualisation Technology, and 64-bit addressing. Look for the Core 2 Extreme X7800 to be the first of the two out of the gate sometime in Q2 or Q3 of this year, clocking in at 2.6GHz and running $795. It'll be followed shortly thereafter in Q4 by the X7900, which will raise the stakes to 2.8GHz, although it's not yet known how much it'll cost.
